The Zeitgeist Movement welcomes you to attend Zeitgeist Day 2017 Main Global Event at the New Globe Theatre in Brisbane, Australia on March 25th-26th with Peter Joseph and other special guests. Join international guests and innovative change-makers as we discuss how science and technology are leading the way towards a more sustainable and equitable future. Discover the possibilities of automation, innovation, artificial intelligence, 3D printing, critical thinking and communication methods and their role in the transition towards the Zeitgeist Movement's ultimate vision, a Natural-Law Resource Based Economy (NLRBE). Discuss how the current money-market system we live in is responsible for issues such as - poverty, corruption, pollution, homelessness, war and starvation - and how our understanding of the system can help us become the change we want to see in the world. Casey Davidson, The Zeitgeist Movement Australia National Coordinator will be hosting the event, joined by changemakers from all over the world, including the Founder of the Zeitgeist Movement, Peter Joseph. You will also have the opportunity to join in... - LIVE performances in the evening - Workshops on a range of topics throughout the day - FREE Vegan Food - Drinks at the bar for purchase - Valuable conversations with a dynamic group of deep thinkers, and a clear understanding of our current reality and possible futures. This page will be updated with information on presenters as they are added to the two-day schedule on Saturday and Sunday 25th-26th March, 2017. We look forward to meeting you on our journey towards global unity and abundance. IMPORTANT INFORMATION REGARDING TICKETS: As Australia is a long way for many of our regular main event presenters, as well as some other well-regarded changemakers who support TZM, we're reaching out to the wider Zeitgeist community to make contributions through ticket sales and phantom tickets (that's for people who can't actually get here but would like to contribute). If you would like to provide a more significant contribution, please email casey.d@zeitgeistaustralia.org (to avoid eventbrite fees). The Australian chapter of the Zeitgeist Movement are just people - we all work just like everyone else to make ends meet, but put our hard earned dollars into making this event a reality. We have managed to cut costs where possible - thanks to Paul from the New Globe Theatre for providing a free amazing venue and others who are volunteering their skills and knowledge. We also provide free food and exchange services wherever we can, to promote the values we stand for. However, some costs, such as flights for international guests are unavoidable. We need to raise about $25,000. Please think about this when considering your ticket choice. We are also providing some free tickets for people who are avid supporters of the Movement but are in a difficult financial situation. If you'd like to appy for a free ticket, please complete this funny quiz and we will email you with your results and possibly your ticket. Thank you also to Emboonite for his incredible work in creating the Z-Day Global flyer. Please check out more of his TZM and related designs on his facebook page. https://www.facebook.com/events/318028225221606/

Dual-function receptors in our skin make mint cool and chili peppers hot. Without the brain's dedicated centers for pleasure and emotional touch, an orgasm would feel more like a sneeze—convulsive, but not especially nice. Dr. David Linden, New York Times-best-selling author of The Compass of Pleasure, delves into how the organization of our body's touch circuits is a complex and often counterintuitive system that affects everything from social interactions to general health and development.

With Amara Karuna Are you wanting a deeper and more satisfying love life? Do you find issues and blocks interfering with your sexuality? This Intro is followed by a demonstration class on Saturday morning, and we will do a hands on practice session Saturday afternoon! Register soon for the intro class to save your space. Open to Healing - Allow yourself to receive healing, relaxed pleasure in a totally new way! Learn to Give - slow, nurturing, healing bodywork around the pelvis and genital areas to bring bliss to your partner Learn Your Body - study the detailed and amazing anatomy of the pelvic area, and specific acupressure points for sexual health Expand Pleasure - Move deeper into sexual potential and skills with specific massage techniques See Introductory Video: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0Ls2TH7N4xA The pelvis in a place where huge amounts of tension, emotions and toxins are stored, which block out our ability to feel aliveness and passion. This is a unique, slow and penetrating touch on the pelvic area, which most people have never experienced. It is relaxing, nurturing, healing and pleasurable all at once. This work draws from the techniques of sacred spot massage, Orgasmic Meditation, cranial sacral work, facia release, Rivers of Love bodywork, Taoist energy healing and cultivation, and deep tissue and acupressure bodywork. This is very deep work that touches into our core channel energies, and can bring up strong emotions and be very transformative. It is wonderful for healing any issues around sexuality, shame, or body image and for expanding our capacity for aliveness, pleasure, juiciness and full body orgasms. Opportunities to learn this work are rare, and usually costs for trainings are much higher, over $400 per weekend. We believe these are such important and needed skills that we keep the costs low enough to be accessible. "Taking Amara's class has enriched our erotic lives immensely. Not only has it provided extremely helpful geographic references to the pelvis, with techniques to dislodge energy blockages, it has enhanced our physical bond, and increased our capacity to experience pleasure. We highly recommend this class to anyone." JM/JM, Medford OR THE DETAILS: Sacred Pelvic Healing Massage Training Open to all, limited space 3 Part class, can be taken in sections, see below: Part 1: Introduction to Sacred Pelvic Healing Self Massage and Buttock Massage $35 *Introduction to working on both men and women, doing release work around the pelvis and internally. *Benefits and intentions of this practice *Different types of touch and their effects, and the special Spiral Twist: key to tissue relaxation. *Subtle Energy Self Discovery: clothed self massage around the pelvis (wear loose clothes). Loosen the tight spots around the perineum! *Pelvic Breathing & stretching- Bringing aliveness to the pelvic area * Exchange of a wonderful buttock massage, fully clothed Part 1 Pay in advance: $35 each prepaid discount, contact me first to be sure there is room, then buy a ticket or Call and we can do a credit card over the phone. 808 982 6755 https://lovingconnections.yapsody.com/ Also Part 2, Massage Demonstrations and training, 9:30-1:30 pm Sat April 1st, $55 and Part 3 Practice trades on Sat April 1st 2:30 pm-6:30 pm, $55 email Amara for more details All three parts together: $135 per person with Intro class paid in advance, $250 per couple. Amara Karuna has been studying alternative healing since 1978. Amara taught Re-evaluation Co-counseling, a method of peer counseling, for over five years, and has been studying and practicing it since 1983. In 1989 she developed her own approach to peer counseling, called Wholistic Peer Support, integrating many ideas from RC with spiritual meditation practices, psychic healing, breathwork and body centered techniques. She has taught hundreds of people to do peer counseling, and has lead many classes and support groups in Hawaii, including groups for sexual healing, parents and leaders. She began studying Tantra and Sacred Spot work, a method of sexual healing, on Maui in 2003, and has since studied six different methods of pelvic bodywork. She has been teaching Sacred Sexual Healing Work for men and women, and leading Tantra Pujas since 2007. See http://karuna-sacredloving.com She developed Heartbeat Nurturing Therapy, a method of healing the inner infant self using cradling, hypnotic induction and suckling to address emotional issues stemming from lack of breast feeding and loving closeness as an infant. She is the author of "Heartbeat Nurturing Therapy- Healing Our Hearts Together". https://www.facebook.com/events/1038563402914917/

Friends of Trees is working with Clean Water Services to restore the Churchill Forest natural area to a diverse and healthy riparian forest and ephemeral wetland. This project is situated in the headwaters of Summer Creek and while the vast majority of the watershed is developed with roads, homes, and strip malls, the stream itself runs through a well-established vegetated corridor thanks to the work of Clean Water Services and area residents. This project will help to protect the uppermost section of the watershed by planting a wide variety of native trees, shrubs, and herbaceous plants. Please arrive around 8:45am to be registered and assigned to a crew. The planting will start promptly at 9:00am. We provide breakfast snacks and hot chocolate/coffee, as well as gloves, tools and guidance. Please come dressed for the weather and wearing sturdy, closed-toe shoes and get ready to have fun! Looking to volunteer as a group? RSVPs are kindly requested for groups of more than 5 people - click HERE to do so. RSVPs are not required for individuals or groups of 4 or fewer -- you may simply show up! Please contact Jenny or Randi at (503) 595-0213 if you have any questions or need more information.

The human body has trillions of cells, but only about 1/10th of those cells are actually human. The rest are microbes that live in and on our bodies, and collectively they’re called the “human microbiome,” and we couldn’t survive without them. They make vitamins for us, help us digest food, and battle disease-causing microbes, and they may influence our behavior, particularly in what and how much we eat. However, disturbances to the gut microbiome, perhaps through antibiotic overuse, have been associated with obesity, asthma, and autism. Understanding how a body’s microbiome is unbalanced or not functioning optimally may help lead to new and unusual treatments such as use of probiotics, prebiotics, and fecal transplants. (Really.) At this Science on Tap, Dr. Lisa Sardinia, http://www.pacificu.edu/about-us/faculty/lisa-sardinia-phd-jd, associate professor of biology at Pacific University, will explain what the microbiome is, how it can get out of balance, and how we may be able to restore health by deliberately changing the kinds or numbers of microbes that share our bodies. ***EVENT DETAILS*** DATE: Tuesday, April 4, 2017 TIME: Doors at 6 p.m. event at 7 p.m. LOCATION: Clinton Street Theater, 2522 SE Clinton Street, Portland, Ore. COST: $8 online advance tickets, $10* suggested cover at the door (see ticket link above). Online sales end at 4:00pm on day of show. FOOD & DRINK: Beer, wine, popcorn, and snacks available. You’re welcome to bring food into the theater with you. Event Website: http://www.viaproductions.org/events/clinton_apr_4_microbes/ _________ *A note on the suggested cover: Science on Tap is supported, in part, by money collected at the door. We are committed to offering educational opportunities to adults who want to learn, so if $10 is a hardship for you, please come anyway and donate what you can.

So grab your friends, family, neighbors, activist group, church group, study group, or any group you have affinity with and sign up together! We ask that you show up in a group; a group does not need to be any kind of formal organization, although it totally CAN be people those people. We ask that groups be made up of at least 3 people, and encourage much larger groups to attend as well. If your group doesn’t already have a name, now’s your chance to think of something awesome to call yourselves. We also ask that regardless of its size, *at least* 3 people from your group attend the training.

Throughout the 2016 presidential campaign, Donald Trump told the American people he would release his tax returns and come clean about his business dealings, as presidential candidates and presidents have done for decades. Despite intense public pressure, President Donald Trump has not yet done so. In refusing to release these tax returns, he is able to hide his business dealings, financial ties, and conflicts of interest. Within days of his inauguration, the White House petition calling on Trump to release his tax returns garnered the most signatures on a White House petition, ever. The Trump administration's response? "People don't care." On April 15th, Oregonians from all political backgrounds are taking to the streets of Portland to show that we do care. Thousands of Oregonians will join people all across the country to send a clear message to Donald Trump: The president is accountable to the American people. He must answer to us.

On April 29th, we mobilize! OPAL and our partners in the Oregon Just Transition Alliance are calling on Oregon's Environmental Justice communities and anyone who stands with people of color and low income people to join the movements for racial, social, and economic justice as pathways to climate action. All individuals are invited to join to show solidarity. RSVP and share the announcement on Facebook here. Grassroots organizations, nonprofits, faith communities, academic institutions, and other groups can formally endorse and support this day of action: click here: https://docs.google.com/forms/d/e/1FAIpQLSe6RbDzdq5-romjZRPYexYckrkyNE_EZhQNqNKQfvxLv0wG4Q/viewform Individuals who want details as they emerge, join the action email list. Click here: http://eepurl.com/cCfXE9 Event Details: Where: Portland, OR When: April 29th, 2017 (specific time and location to be announced soon!) What: Visible direct action led by people of color and low-income communities who are at the front lines of environmental and climate injustice. What we know: - People of color suffer the worst impacts of climate change both in the U.S. and worldwide. Communities of color and low income people are disproportionately affected by natural and manmade disaster. We are the last to leave and the first to respond to disaster. Our communities already lack basic infrastructure to support us – from adequate transportation options to affordable housing and food access. These systems will fail during climate disaster. - Housing is a climate issue. Transportation is a climate issue. Energy, education, food, and jobs are climate issues. Every sector of our economy must transition to stop climate change. - Our communities are under attack by climate denial rooted in systems of oppression. A bold, urgent, collective response is needed. - Historically-marginalized people must lead the transition to advance justice, or the outcomes will not improve conditions for those of us who are most-impacted. Nothing about us without us! - Grassroots Global Justice states, “The climate crisis is a symptom of a deeper problem: an economy based on extraction and exploitation of resources and people. This economy benefits a few at the expense of communities and the planet. ... Climate Action must be rooted in justice. The frontlines of the climate crisis are low-income people, communities of color and indigenous communities. We are the hardest hit by both climate disruption––the storms, floods and droughts––as well as by the extractive, polluting and wasteful industries causing global warming. We are also at the forefront of innovative community-led solutions that ensure a just transition off fossil fuels, and that support an economy good for both people and the planet. ... People on the frontlines of the climate crisis know what action needs to be taken, and are ready to make change happen. We need our governments and global leaders to catch up with the people on the ground.” - The Climate Justice Alliance Principles state, “Living a good life in a good way can only happen by first recognizing that the root causes of the daily economic, environmental and social inequity that plague communities worldwide are also compromising the metabolism of Mother Earth; and that all real solutions must address both the economic and ecological crisis. This recognition is what defines the Climate Justice Movement." In Solidarity With All Movements for Justice - The People's Climate Movement is also mobilizing in Washington, D.C. on April 29th, with echo actions taking place nationwide. We stand in solidarity with impacted people around the country and around the globe to demand action to stop and reverse climate change, prepare for and adapt to climate change, and strengthen community to grow our collective power. - Environmental Justice was among the Unity Principles of the Women’s March on Washington: “We believe that every person and every community in our nation has the right to clean water, clean air, and access to and enjoyment of public lands. We believe that our environment and our climate must be protected, and that our land and natural resources cannot be exploited for corporate gain or greed - especially at the risk of public safety and health.” - Environmental and Climate Justice intersect the great issues of our time. Everyone who fights for racial, social and economic justice must recognize the urgency of this moment, and that our fates are bound. https://www.facebook.com/events/1250735871647787/
